Has anyone had any good experiences or can recommend any image zooming services - I'm looking for an alternative to Scene 7!
Any suggestion needs to be good enough to operate on a significantly sized website - for a big retailer - range in excess of 20,000 products.

Other types of functionality can also be dealth with using custom code. For an example see: http://www.touratzis.gr/en/showroom-floor-ChooseFloor.html I am sure you will find it very interesting.
I hope this helps.

The best zoom tool for your needs is probably Magic Touch:
Dramatically more affordable than Scene7 and with more features and easier integration.

Jake, I think it will still not be cheap with 20K products (ie. several dozens of zoom-views per month, depending on how popular the siteand products are). It would come out to be at least about £1000/year which would be an ongoing cost.
As custom developed functionality it would be a one-off cost with nothing else to pay monthly or annually.
In my view, doing it as a custom-made piece of functionality would be cheaper, all the functionality would be centralised in one place and most of all, it would be part of the actual site and as such within the ownership of the business.

Different ways to skin a cat.
Functionality like this is hard to get right. For a high traffic site you can opt for Scene7 and pay £x'000s per month. Or use Magic Touch and pay perhaps £100 per month. Or build a system yourself but make sure you know what you are getting yourself in for!

We have an image zoom product that we created in-house for large etailers.
We created the "I-Zoom" trademarked product to help etailers
present their products more like they would in their high street stores.
Our product I-Zoom gives great quality, no download delay, separate
positioning window to aid with usability, large display windows to accommodate
more detail, and much more. It’s been tried and tested with Blue Chips
clients seeing likelihood to purchase raised by up to 50%. This is a perfect solutions if you have
10,000 or more products. Would love to
discuss futher, feel free to be in touch,
